So, what’s the secret of overcoming fear?
The way we think and feel about our self, including our beliefs and expectations about what is possible for us, determines everything that happens to us.
When we change the quality of our thinking, we change the quality of our life, sometimes instantly. Just as positive words can make someone smile or a well-timed humorous quote can make someone laugh, our thoughts react to the world in real-time.
We have complete control over only one thing in the universe — our thinking – and that’s where motivational quotes come in!
